The par-3 16th has elements of Cypress Point's famous 15th and 16th holes.
The 16th green, under an ominous sky.
Holes 15 through 18 are perched high along the cliffs with expansive views of the coastline. Here, a view from the 16th green.
What makes Cabot Cliffs so special is the variety of holes. Here, the par-3 sixth is tucked among low-lying dunes.
The forced-carry tee shot at the 17th hole.
And the approach from behind the 17th green.
A side view of the par-3 12th, with the par-5 18th in the distance.
Looking out at the par-4 15th, with Sea Wolf Island in the distance, brings to mind Ailsa Craig off the coast of Turnberry in Scotland.
The par-5 18th, as seen from the back tee, finishes along the cliffs.
Standing on the 18th green, it's just you, the ocean and the sky.
